Shooter injures 5 at IFIXUGLY Barber Shop in Old Brooklyn

1) Five people were shot – two barbers and three customers – Thursday afternoon at the IFIXUGLY barber shop in Old Brooklyn. One of the injured is in critical condition with a chest injury. Owner Tim Gillespie said 30 people were in the Cleveland store at the corner of State Road and Saratoga. “The way he opened the door to the store and the way he fired, he didn’t care about anybody’s life. They didn’t care, man,” Gillespie said. The injured, aged 19 to 34, were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center. Police say the shooter fled in a red Toyota Corolla. Many professional athletes, including Guardians José Ramirez, had their hair cut at the store.

2) A Cleveland police officer sent an ex-girlfriend a nude photo of herself and threatened to send an explicit video to her employer to force her to have an abortion, according to disciplinary records of the Police Department. A year ago, Hassan Ali was touted as a hero for helping find a kidnapped baby. Now he is off the force, resigning amid an investigation into his behavior. The city accused him of repeatedly lying while texting the photo to the woman.

4) Laura Valentine sued Cedar Point for a refund on her 2020 season pass, which became unusable for part of the season because the park was closed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cedar Point usually opens in May but didn’t open until July of this year. Valentine, of Mayfield Heights, filed a lawsuit to get her money back. This week, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled in favor of Cedar Point, saying the park did not need to issue a refund. The park has, however, extended season passes through 2021.
